Says Primitive Race founding member and bassist Chris Knicker:

“When I listened to the music, ideas just came pouring out,” Mosley had previously stated. “I couldn’t say no to doing the record. When we completed the first few tracks, I found myself wishing I had written them. Not just the lyrics…just good heavy riffs and grooves really sucked me in. The melodies and words came super easy with this music. Even though it’s a whole different vibe it brought out a side of me I haven’t experienced since writing with Faith No More.”

Early Praise for Soul Pretender:

It’s hard not to view Primitive Race’s sophomore outing, Soul Pretender, as the next chapter in Chuck Mosley’s epic comeback story. On the record, out Friday on Metropolis, Mosley is positively radiant, sounding better, sharper and more engaged than he has since the heyday of Faith No More’s Introduce Yourself. After years of being relegated to the struggles of “solo” outings and hard-to-find Cement discs, Mosley here is raspy – he wears his age incredibly well – and utterly menacing as he lurks behind lurching guitars and the occasional twinkle of a keyboard, the landscape darker than his previous work. And, damn, does it work! – Pop Dose

If Primitive Race’s stylistic trajectory is to be considered, as exhibited in the group’s two albums; add to that, the invigorating (but at the same time, inadvertent) inclusion of Mosley’s memories into this latest offering – then there should be something more that can be expected from the collective’s future projects. For the meantime, let your senses get drowned in pleasant torture in the sonic machinery of this scorching undertaking. – CrypticRock

Time will tell what the next incarnation of Primitive Race will hold, but if the first two albums are any indication, then it should be just as great while continuing to establish the supergroup’s place in the world of punk and industrial rock. – mxdwn

“Mosley discussed Soul Pretender with me during our interview about two months ago, praising it as unlike anything he had ever heard and claiming that it spoke to him in a way that he felt beyond compelled to work on this project. After listening to the album, I can understand why Mosley was drawn to the project as Soul Pretender is a unique and seamless collision of alternative, industrial, and punk rock. Just as Mosley said, it really is unlike anything else. His pride for the album as a whole was not only completely justified, but his own performance stands out as one of the best among his diverse career. While it is a common cliché to claim someone went out with a bang at the top of their game, it’s clear that Mosley truly did. As a whole, Soul Pretender, is an excellent record and a must hear for fans of 90’s alternative and hard rock as well as those who prefer modern rock from the last decade. After listening to Soul Pretender a number of times, it is clear that Primitive Race is truly a band to watch out for.” Spill Magazine

JACLYN KENYON Releases Official Music Video for “Daddy’s Got a Shotgun”

Country artist JACLYN KENYON has released the official music video for her single, “Daddy’s Got a Shotgun” Directed by Jordan Davies, the Mike Krompass produced track is the first single off of her upcoming, debut EP.

“This is a cute fun song I wrote about an overprotective father, …no matter how old you are you’re always gonna be your daddy’s little girl, right?” – Jaclyn Kenyon

Not knowing who you want to be is a normal part of growing up. Sometimes you have to search again and again to find your voice and who you are. Most importantly, being confident enough at a young age to keep pushing yourself and having the drive to succeed and work hard is why Jaclyn Kenyon is poised to make a real impact in Music.

With influence from such legends as Shania TwainCarrie UnderwoodMichael Jackson, and excited about such newer young female artists like Maren MorrisKelsea BalleriniCarly Pearce, “A little Rock n’ Roll and A LOT Country” is what you can see and feel just by meeting this 20 year old Ontario native, who has been going back and forth to Nashville since she was a teenager.

Always a strong performer, Jaclyn has been on the stage since the age of 12, when she was the youngest performer ever in Canada’s all female artist showcase Honey Jam, competing against artists twice her age. This prestigious showcase, Canada’s largest and best known, had launched the careers of Nelly Furtado and Jully Black.

At 15 years old Jaclyn caught the eye of world renowned vocal coach and multi-platinum producer “Mama” Jan Smith who immediately saw her raw talent. “Jaclyn, as a writer, I believe she can write for anybody,” Mama Jan said of Jaclyn, “Stylistically, she really doesn’t have a lot of limits, which is awesome.”

After that Jaclyn was fortunate enough to learn more about herself as an artist with multi-platinum writers and producers in Nashville and Los Angeles where she spent time trying to find what inspires her

“People have always had me try and sing different styles, whether it was Country, Rock or Pop. I’ve always went along and tried every idea to find my voice. I’ve even had producers make me sing ‘hard rock’ “, says Jaclyn recanting some of the musical adventures she went through as a teenager, “One producer kept telling me to lose my ‘country twang’ in my voice and I didn’t realize that was just a natural part of me.

Jaclyn’s first single off her upcoming EP, “Daddy’s Got A Shotgun,” was Produced by Mike Krompass and co-written with Nashville luminaries Clay Mills and Steve Diamond.

In addition, Jaclyn has been writing in Nashville with Producer Mike Krompass, and writers Robbie NevilRich Redmond.

Said of her brand new song ‘Daddy’s Got A Shotgun’ ,”This is a cute fun song I wrote about an overprotective father, …no matter how old you are you’re always gonna be your daddy’s little girl, right?

Jaclyn is getting ready for what’s next, “With the great fans I’ve been building, I’ll be able to play live more often than I thought” Said an excited Jaclyn “ I’ll let you know when I play next. Please keep listening and sharing my music”

WE GAVE IT HELL Release Debut LP, ‘Labyrinth’


Las Vegas based Metal band WE GAVE IT HELL has released their debut LP, Labyrinth with music videos for the singles “Mapmaker” and “Prayer.”

“‘Mapmaker’ is that song that summarizes and the concept of the album LABYRINTH. It’s about individual struggle. It’s about depression or anxiety at any level. It’s about self-torment and being stuck in one’s head even when one seems to be absolutely fine. The music was written in such a way that carries a somewhat “happy” feeling during the verses then transitions into a “dark” and/or “sad” feeling. The lyrics were carefully chosen to keep the listener understanding and empathizing with the song. We were very stoked and pleased when the pre-production of this song was done and couldn’t wait to release it. The video illustrates what we’ve meticulously worked on for this song.” – We Gave It Hell

Track List:

URN Releases Official Music Video for “Silently, I’m Still Screaming”


Orlando based Gothic Folk Metal band URN has released the official music video for their single, “Silently, I’m Still Screaming,” off of their 2015 released LP, Epiphany. The band’s newly announced members, keyboardist Cleve Hall (SyFy’s “Monster Man”) and drummer Eric James Peterson (ex-Electric Hellfire Club) are featured in “Silently, I’m Still Screaming” from their Epiphany LP released on Dark Moon Records.

“Many fans had given feedback that this song was one of their more favorites off of the album, so we wished to honor them by doing this video. We also wished to showcase our guitarist, Christopher Migdalski’s lead work on this song, as he has been a role model for those afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease and how to overcome disabilities to still pursue his life dream. Our hope is that this will inspire those to continue on in their battle and achieve whatever dreams/goals that they have.” – URN

Mr. Hall had become friends with the band a couple years ago when attending a Hollywood tour date of theirs back in 2015 and expressed interest in producing a video. Over time during their collaboration, it was discovered that Mr. Hall was an accomplished musician and worked with several bands in the Los Angeles are in the 1980s such as Exquisite Corpse and Mad Love. Cleve filled in on keyboards for URN’s 2016 West Coast tour and appeared and helped produce the new promotional video.

Mr. Peterson was the original drummer of the Electric Hellfire Club whom URN frontman/guitarist Dominic St. Charles was also an alumni member. The two had an opportunity to connect during the EHC’s 25th anniversary/farewell concert last year at The Orpheum Theater in Tampa and wanted to continue to work with each other afterwards. Eric Petersen also was recently the touring drummer for former American Idol alum James Durbin.

The video was filmed in Los Angeles, CA by Jackie Bones for Steal Your Ghost Productions and additional footage was filmed by Noel McD of Global Rapture Productions (Melbourne, FL) who also edited the video. URN had worked with Global Rapture previously on their 2015 video “Cast in Amber” which was the first single released of the Epiphany album. Dominic St. Charles co-directed the video with Mr. Bones. URN wishes to acknowledge and thank those who contributed to the crowd funding campaign to help make this video possible. These individuals will get an exclusive private viewing before the actual release of the video to the public.

URN has also completed the writing process on their sixth album which is tentatively entitled “;”(Semicolon) and have been in talks with Thom Hazaert(Thom Hazaert Company/Ellefson Music Productions) to produce the upcoming album with a potential 2018 release date. The band also is in the process of booking tours that will have them return to Canada and Mexico in 2018.

The U.S.-based dark metal band URN® is one on a musical journey exploring the darker aspects of both the conscious mind and the unconscious soul. The band has been captivating audiences across multiple genres and have been establishing themselves as one the more energetic live acts to see. The band has drawn comparisons by national trade media to such artists such as Type O NegativeLacuna CoilAmorphisNightwishMy Dying Bride and other similar acts that tend to find a certain beauty in darkness.

URN began back in 2000, while singer/guitarist Dominic St. Charles was still an active member of the Electric Hellfire Club. After fulfilling tour obligations with acts such as Danzig and GWAR, URN went out on two national tours in 2001. The band recorded and released a maxi-single called “Consecrated Ashes” to assist in touring and sold out the 500 copies of the self-release.

In 2003, the band followed up that release with the Desecrated Ashes EP and was met with great success and acclaim. The album received strong airplay support via college and Internet stations all through the United States as well as in Mexico and Canada. URN has also done a several simulcasts with Internet radio stations such as IPM Radio and Metal Works Radio.

URN signed with Rotting Corpse Records in the fall of 2005 and released their full-length LP Dancing with the Demigods with major chain-store distribution through Century MediaSynergy Distribution and Azure Green in July 2006. The album has received rave reviews in many major trade magazines such a Pit MagazineExplicitly IntenseNew WitchDark RealmsThe Ninth GateBrave Words, and Bloody Knuckles, and many more. This album has been out of print since 2008.

As a result, URN toured extensively throughout the United States and Canada and in the process toured/shared the stage with honored acts such as Moonspell, Type O Negative, To/Die/ForKatatoniaVirgin BlackTroubleBella MorteNovembers DoomCeltic Frost, and many notable others.

The band released their second full-length LP in 2009 on Rotting Corpse Records entitled Scribings of a Forgotten Soul. This was a concept album based on the true accounts of individuals that Dominic personally knew that survived the 1989 prison riots at the State Correctional Institution – Camp Hill in Pennsylvania.

With its release, URN took to the road once again in support of the new album, playing all over North America, including tour dates with TarjaFinntrollThe EternalSwallow the Sun, Katatonia, Blackguard, and Lividity. The band released another promotional video for the single “Reckoning Hour”.

In October 2011, Urn relocated from Chicago, IL to Orlando, FL and proceeded to continue to do headlining tours throughout North and Central America. In early 2014, URN signed with Dark Moon Records and released their fourth studio full-length album entitled “Epiphany” on August 25, 2015 as well as their promotional video for the single “Cast in Amber”.

The band embarked on several U.S. tours to support the release highlighted by attending the 2016 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, Laconia Bike Rally in Laconia, NH, and GenCon in Indianapolis. The band also released a promotional video for the self-titled track from the “Epiphany” album in Summer 2016.

URN, a band who is always pushing their boundaries and thresholds, looks to continue to do so over the coming years by their life commitment to constantly evolve, adapt, and grow on their musical journey. Through their ongoing collaborations with artists of other mediums such as author/media personality Michelle Belanger of A&E’s Paranormal State, and Cleve Hall, from SyFy’s “Monster Man” who officially joined the band as keyboardist in 2016. Ms. Belanger did guest vocals on Desecrated Ashes ând ˆDancing with the Demigods and appeared in URN’s video for their “Shadow Dancer” single which was nationally distributed to many media channels and is available on the album as well.

Eric James Peterson (ex-Electric Hellfire Club) joined as the new drummer officially in 2017. Both he and Mr. Hall are featured in their new promotional video that just finished production for the single “Silently, I’m Still Screaming” from their Epiphany LP released on Dark Moon Records.

URN has also completed the writing process on their sixth album which is tentatively entitled “;”(Semicolon) and have been in talks with Thom Hazaert (Thom Hazaert Company/Ellefson Music Productions) to produce the upcoming album with a potential 2018 release date. The band also is in the process of booking tours that will have them return to Canada and Mexico in 2018.

SMALL TOWN TITANS Celebrate 24 Years of ‘Superunknown’ With Cover of SOUNDGARDEN’s “Spoonman”

York, PA heavy rock band SMALL TOWN TITANS has released the Official Music Video for their cover of SOUNDGARDEN’s“Spoonman” to celebrate the 24th anniversary of the release of Superunkownon March 8, 1994.

“Chris Cornell has been a musical hero of mine since I was in high school and has been a major influence in the style of our band. Soundgarden’s repertoire of music is vast and difficult to pull off. The reason we decided to cover this classic of theirs is not only to challenge our musicianship and ability but to also pay tribute to one of the greatest voices and lyricists of Rock ‘n Roll from one of the greatest bands of all time. Our hope is that our interpretation does the song and it’s original performers the justice and recognition it deserves.” – Phil Freeman

Click HERE to Download / Stream “Spoonman” Online

The Small Town Titans are a power trio from York, PA who love to constantly create, as well as play live. Gone is the notion that a rock band should only release 10 songs at a time every 2 years. In a world where music fans crave new content constantly, the Small Town Titans aim to deliver their brand of art all of the time, drawing inspiration from a new wave of rock bands such as Highly Suspect and Royal Blood, and rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, and Deep Purple. Thanks to their efforts at assembling their own studio in a basement, STT can create and release songs, podcasts, live online concerts, and more with no rules. This artistic change in attitude stems from touring for the better part of 2 years, and realizing how difficult it really is.

After coming home from their last 30 day run, the band had made $4,000. After repairing their vehicle, restocking their merchandise and more, the band was left with $1,000. After putting most of that back into the band’s funds as usual, each member took home $150. This startling reality made STT take a step back and evaluate themselves as a band, a brand, and a business. After firing their manager, the boys soldiered on with the help of their team at Round 2 Records. They began to truly treat Small Town Titans as a legitimate small business more than ever before. Unnecessary expenses were cut, and more creative and innovative sources of new revenue were explored, such as utilizing the direct to fan creation platform Patreon, where the band is currently making $200 every time they release a new song on YouTube.

Instead of trying to make a million fans, STT is focusing on the fans they already have. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with a set list that’s decided right before the show, and plenty of stage banter in between songs. The band simply hits the stage to deliver an energy driven show using guitars, drums, and their voices. Nothing more, nothing less. This approach to their live performances has led to them sharing the stage with acts such as Highly Suspect, Papa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

By focusing on their engagement with social media and managing themselves, Small Town Titans are growing like never before and having more success as a business and a brand. The band just wrapped up a weekend long recording session at Hybrid Studios with friend Kevin Soffera, drummer for Seether on the 5x platinum selling record Disclaimer II, and who STT also recorded their last album Reflection with. Six brand new songs were recorded live in the studio, as well as professionally filmed by Springwood Productions at the same time. These new songs and videos will be released throughout the rest of 2017 and 2018. Songs range from the hard hitting “Me, Myself, and Monster” and “Wreck” to the ballad “Dragonfly”, an emotional song written in memory of Phil’s mother, who passed away earlier this year due to cancer, performed live with just one voice and an acoustic guitar.

Small Town Titans are actively forming a team of like minded individuals in the new music business who are just as driven and passionate as they are, rather than waiting to be discovered. As the band continues to grow their fan base online this year, they will also hit the road, this time with a smarter game plan, a stronger fan base, and a passionate team behind them.

It is theatrical, it is angry, it is mournful, it is joyous, and it is rebellious. We do our best to take into account all of our musical tastes when we write; DAWN is our coming of age story and is, justifiably, chock full of emotions, varied genres, and passion. We hope you love it as much as we do!” – Echo Black
